The perfect dress for a sultry summer evening, don't you think? The pastel rainbow of a skirt is knife pleated all the way around and set off to perfection with the solid blue bodice that buttons down the back. Dress by David Crystal in Celanese Arnel jersey for spring 1956. Sold for $40 (about $345 in today's dollar.) Oh, and the wicker chair is by Widdicomb, another famous mid-century brand.
